Black and Tan before and afters?

Any guesses on how much tan she'll get?
What did your pup look like when he/she was young.
She's 11 weeks old.

Belle at 6 weeks old, 10 weeks old And now at 8 months. At 6 weeks you can see big black marks on her legs going into her tan and by 10 weeks they were almost gone! She wasn't very tan when we picked her up.. She has way more tan on her face now and around her ears! She also has a beautiful tan "mane".

She's beautiful. I think Alexandra (Lexi) will be a bit darker because she has more black on the chest but her tummy is already turning more tan.

It's so hard to tell what they will look like. Belle looked like that when she was quite young! They change so quickly. Belle isn't black and tan but bi colored! Your girl is super cute!

I'm guessing that's what Lexi is too then? Her dad was mostly black with some tan mom was a lighter color.
Interested in the difference

I always thought bicolored Shepherds had VERY VERY little tan on them and typically have a black streak on each knuckle. I may be wrong though.

Bi colors won't have tan on their body but can have tan legs and points on their face, although usually very small

I was told bi colored were mostly black, so it didn't look like they had a saddle??
Maybe I'm wrong?

Bi-colors have 'penciling' on their toes and 'tar heels' on their back legs. They don't change color much, if at all, over the course of their lives.

Good examples of bi-color dogs:



Your dog, like my 5 year old, is a blanket back black and tan. They lighten as they age. My girl looked a bit like she may be bi-color as a puppy, but has lightened as she matured and now, though still dark, is pretty typical of a blanket back black and tan.
